I had a HMI which compiled and worked fine.
But, yesterday, I couldn't compile because of a Syncfusion error.
So, I installed Essential Studio and it compiled.
But, at the execution, Syncfusion did something for the licence... And, now, I have an exception!!!

The code is:
this.dockingManager.SetDockLabel(this.sideBar, "Applications");

The (french) message is:
"Impossible d'effectuer un cast d'un objet de type 'Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.MainFormController' en type 'Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.DockControllerBase'."

(Unable to cast...)

Thank you very much for your answers!

VS 2005 SP1 and .Net 2.0 SP1

Hi Cedric,

Thank you for your interest in Syncfusion Products.

It appears that this issue could be raised due to some reference problems. Could you please do the below given steps?

1. Manually remove all the Syncfusion assemblies (either or previous versions ) from the following locations.

C:\WINDOWS\assembly - GAC
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\MSEnv\PublicAssemblies - Common files
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\Common7\IDE\PublicAssemblies - VS2005 PublicAssemblies

2) Copy the assemblies from the following location

{Installed Drive}:\Program Files\Syncfusion\Essential Studio\\precompiledassemblies\\2.0
and manually place it in the above mentioned GAC and Public Assemblies folders.

3)Copy and paste does not work in GAC so Drag and drop the assemblies from {Installed Drive}:\Program Files\Syncfusion\Essential Studio\\precompiledassemblies\\2.0 to C:\windows\assembly (GAC)

3) Now complie your project.

Please try this and let me know if this helps you.
